Elephant Down! Says GOP Party Of Yesterday

Simply put, the GOP is patented for being the party of fear, scandals, and no diversity of significance. Exemplifies party first over country.

 

[Letter To The Editor]

Where were the GOP core philosophy and local outrage at the reckless spending when the GOP controlled the White House, Congress, and our FloridaState and County governments? 


The GOP remains in control of the State and OkaloosaCounty governments-economics failure-look in the mirror. The mismanagement of local tax dollars does not speak well of local elected Republican officials who gave $692K in bonuses, indicted for official misconduct and perjury or waiting jail sentence for a "kick-back" scheme.


Where were GOP public comments, responses, or outrage regarding the local scandals that have given OkaloosaCounty a bad name-Crookdaloosa or ScandaloosaCounty and so on?  The GOP leaders' silence on local corruption speaks to their philosophy-principles on paper only.


Let's get real on diversity. In 1992, a local civil rights group coached minority voters to switch parties to unseat the incumbent Sheriff, befriended the newly elected Sheriff and other Republicans; and did not outreach to the minority voters to switch back. 


Local minority voters over time independently made the switch to other parties; leaving 8% minority voters in the GOP locally. Nationally, only 36 Black delegates (2% of total GOP delegates) attended the Republican Convention last year-none from

OkaloosaCounty. 


Simply put, the GOP is patented for being the party of fear, scandals, and no diversity of significance. Exemplifies party first over country.
